Does your community have an environmental project or a piece of land to improve, which could make a significant difference to your local environment?
Is your idea widely supported within your community?
Perth & Kinross Council could support you with a grant
of between £2,500 and £10,000.
Community
Environment
Challenge Fund
Monitoring the Project
An End of Grant Monitoring Form will be provided to each community group
who has received funding so that the positive impacts on the community and
the local area can be recorded, shared and celebrated.
Who can apply?
The organisation seeking funding must be a constituted group and could act
on behalf of other community partners.
Projects must be developed by community or voluntary organisations.
The definition of a voluntary or community organisation is a body led by
volunteers, is non-profit distributing, legally independent of the state, and is
dedicated to a public good (CoSLA/SCVO 1998).
The project must have the written support of all local Councillors in the Ward
where the project is taking place.
The project must also have the support of a range of local community groups
such as Bloom Groups, Development Trusts, Youth Groups and Community
Councils.
Before work starts, projects must have the agreement of the landowner and
also any statutory consent such as planning permission or building warrants
if required.
